Stargazinglily Review {Plus a giveaway!}

Recently, I was given the opportunity to sample some products from Stargazinglily.

Stargazinglily offers handmade, handstrung bracelets and accessories. You can find anything from matching "Me and My Doll" bracelets, to ponytail streamers and much more, all personalized just for you! You simply choose from the available options such as size, colors and name personalization, then sit back and let Stargazinglily create something perfect for you.

I was so excited when Kristin Roof, owner of Stargazinglily, offered to let me review some of her newest products. She offered to send me a Mickey and Minnie Mouse inspired bracelet for each of my kids and my niece!

The package arrived all wrapped up in fun, glittery tissue paper, with a cute Stargazinglily sticker to keep it closed. Packaging means a lot to me, especially when purchasing gifts for my loved ones. I like knowing that the item I send to them will show up looking great before they even open it.

Inside the tissue paper was even more packaging goodness! Kristin takes the time to individually place each separate item in a color-coordinating bag! Talk about attention to detail! Just imagine how special a recipient feels getting something that looks like this. I know I did. And can I please mention how adorable the tiny, yellow bag is?!? This one contained my newborn son's Mickey Mouse inspired bracelet.

Stargazinglily offers their Minnie Mouse inspired bracelets in both pink and red color options. I chose the pink option for my niece, Emyri, as her mommy loves pink. I have since found out from a recent visit that Emyri has a Minnie Mouse toy, dressed in a pink outfit! Yay! I chose the classic red version for my daughter, Olivia. And for my son, Trevor, we received the Mickey Mouse inspired bracelet.

Kristin does her sizing by the age of the child, through an average size per age system. If you have any concerns, you could also give her an exact measurement. I gave her the ages of my children, adding two years to each, for the sizing info. I asked for larger bracelets (two years larger), since I'd like to take them to Disney World in a couple years, and want these to fit them by then. I cannot WAIT to take them there, wearing these adorable bracelets! For Emyri, I asked for a size that will fit a one year old. This is part of her Christmas present, and she'll be nearly a year old by then. (I hope they aren't reading this post!!!)

Here are some closeups of the bracelets, taken directly from Stargazinglily:

Notice how she has handmade the mouse beads from fimo clay. They even have matching pink or red hair bows, with hand painted white polka dots! SO Minnie!

 This one is adorned with red, black, yellow and white beads. For a bracelet, I must say this one is very boyish! Kristin also handmakes the mouse beads with fimo clay, while hand painting them to look like Mickey's white-buttoned, red pants. Adorbs!

Check out the other bracelets I have ordered from Stargazinglily in the past, easily found in her Etsy shop.

The Mommy Bracelet with Trio of Wood Beads - Below is the actual bracelet I ordered after having my first child! I wanted three strands, so I had her turn it into a "family" bracelet, representing my husband, daughter and me.

The Sweet Summer Strawberry Charm Bracelets - I sent two of these cuties to my nieces last Christmas!

The Ballerina Charm Bracelet - The first Stargazinglily bracelet we owned: A special keepsake from my daughter's first birthday party!

Kristin offers such adorable accessories at unbelieveable prices! Please check out her Etsy shop for all that she offers. Of the now seven Stargazinglily bracelets we own throughout our family, each one is special and unique. I'm a huge fan of Stargazinglily's products, and look forward to what the future brings for Kristin's company!

Here, Kristin tells us a little bit about her creation process.

"I only purchase quality beads through many bead suppliers and make my own mixes. I enjoy custom orders as my customers are full of great ideas. My burnished wood pieces are done by free hand. I don't burn the letters or images with stencils or stamps. Everything is done one at a time, made per order and freehand. All clay pieces are also hand made. Each one is a one of a kind as I don't use any moulds."

Stargazinglily is offering you a chance to win a $27 Gift Card (the retail value of my three bracelets)! She is graciously sponsoring our 8K Facebook Fan giveaway. {ENTER HERE} from 8/15/12 - 9/14/12!
